leftydee BS: Should Feds Bail Out G.M.??? (64* d) RE: BS: Should Feds Bail Out G.M.??? 19 Dec 05

I don't know if you're an American or not Guest Jimmy but if you are you'd be working for fish heads and potatoes had it not been for labor unions, whether you're in a union or not. The goodness of managment's heart never would have produced a middle class. The greed in their hearts is now what causes them to rape pension funds and trade your future for a little more profit. Unions have forced some redistribution in wealth and that's healthy. The economies that now are busy are the ones where there is gross poverty.

Robomatic, I understand what you're saying, I just don't think it's reality. Yes, the USAs greatest strength is our creativity and inventiveness. There is still a need for production type work. Unionized production work is what opens the door to the middle class for those of us that are, maybe, not so creative or inventive. If all we produce is high tech ideas, what do we do with the less clever amongst us?
